A-Data 512GB SSD at CeBIT
At the ongoing CeBIT show in Germany, Taiwan's A-Data showed off a 2.5-inch, 512GB solid state drive (SSD), the XPG. A-Data says the 512GB XPG is capable of reading data at 230MBps while write speeds are as high as 160MBps, though these have to be verified in real-world testing. The drive features a standard SATA II interface.
There are larger SSDs out there, however, as pureSilicon makes a 1TB version it introduced at CES that ASUS has recently put into its high-end Lamborghini-edition VX5 notebook. A-Data has not announced pricing or release date information for the 512GB XPG SSD. [via Laptop]
